Yesterday morning, we asked you how Android 4.2 – the bug-ridden latest version of Google’s smartphone and tablet operating system – was treating you. And just like that, Google has released an update for the OS on its Nexus devices, bringing back the missing month of December just in time for, well, December.
Dubbed Android 4.2.1, the update fixes the bug which caused December to completely disappear from the calendar in the people/contacts app. The missing month wasn’t a mission-critical bug, but it was certainly perplexing and made adding end-of-the-year birthdays and anniversaries nigh impossible. Thankfully, the issue has been resolved. If you have a Nexus 4, Nexus 7, or Nexus 10, you’re going to want to download the small update so you can get your 31 days back.
Unfortunately, Android 4.2.1 doesn’t fix any of the operating system’s other bugs, such as battery issues, random reboots, Bluetooth connection problems, and more. With any luck, we’ll be getting a fix for these in the near future as well.
